It's August, over 100 degrees and the smell of fry oil is in the air, that can only mean one thing, it's time for the Iowa State Fair! We don't get to the fair every year, but when we do it's always an experience! We were able to get out this year, we went this past Saturday. The weather was actually a bit chilly and it ended up raining, luckily we were out of there by then. I will be volunteering a few more nights at the Living History Farms booth, where I am interning this summer.

Then there are rides to ride. Charlie went on the carousel and was terrified enough that he didn't want to ride anything else.
Of course, Faith ran into people she knows, we can't go anywhere, and I mean anywhere, without her running into at least two people she knows. This was lucky for me, because she went on a bunch of rides with her friends, Danika and Olivia, so I didn't have to. I get really motion sick!

Oops, I almost forget the ever popular butter sculptures! This year was a Snow White theme.
All in all, the day was fun. The kids had a blast and passed out right after their baths, so I was happy. The fair is an experience not to be missed, especially if you have great concert tickets at the Grand Stand! This year I did not, but in past years I have seen Alicia Keys, Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley and Rascal Flatts.
